I see all too often those that are dragged off course by the error of teaching, the deceptions of life and the unwillingness to rise up. And the hard part is knowing where some of it all ends. As you read this piece today I would like to encourage you to not allow the enemy to draw you to the side, to pull at you and destroy you. Continue reading Is It Time To Celebrate?→
My friend Pat and I are fellow prophets. We function in the grace given by God in Ephesians 4:11 as prophets. And yet, we are by far different in our words, our demeanor and our process. Still we are great friends. Some years ago, another friend described us as Zechariah and Habakkuk.
A few months ago, I tabled the idea that we ought to pick a topic and write on it. Not talk to one another about it but write our thoughts out and share our sides, our thoughts and our voices. Finally we have done it!
We had a very unique gathering yesterday at the fellowship I am part of. We had “church in the round”, so to speak. Everyone who was there was invited to become an active participant in what God was saying and doing rather than just listening to one person speak. This was very exciting for me personally as I have always believed that format should be a significant portion of our fellowship gatherings. Silly me! Continue reading Reinstating The Draft→
Last night as I went to say goodnight to Jacob, I looked down at a sock monkey someone had made for me a few years ago. I picked it up and brought it downstairs. I left it on the chair. I went back up to pray with Jacob and Tina and returned to the couch downstairs. I sat there and thought about children and the similarities between how I would want my children treated. How God treats me. I sat there and looked at the sock monkey. (As a child I thought a particular sock monkey was God. Not sure why. But I did. Telling the story one day, a lady gave me a new one.)

While much of the news and social media feeds is consumed with thoughts on bad movies, yoga pants and Speedos, the fact of the matter ought to go all the way back to the simple question of why. Why do we flame others over their thoughts and opinions? Why do we care? And maybe we can jump to “how did they arrive at that thought” or conclusion.

In 1995 I started my first internet company. Internet? Who would have thought? Technological progress at speeds previously before not thought of. Every time you turned around there was a new start-up. Deals were made on napkins in diners and restaurants. Sure the internet had been around some 40 plus years (Thank you Al Gore…)and computers could now fit on your desk instead of taking up your whole bedroom. Each week I would stand before rooms of business people, explaining to them how something they had not heard of, could not see, would make their business better.

This morning I went through some technology frustration. This program would not shut off. Another would not respond. Things did not work the way I had planned or the way they ought to. So, I find myself running a little later than normal. Delays are great opportunities to see patience worked out in one’s life! Continue reading Removing Darkness For Goodness’ Sake→
Today is the last night of my home group. For 6 weeks we have talked about engaging with God, hearing from Him. Listening. I love walking with people to help them hear from Him. Let’s be real. We all want to hear from God. Continue reading Hear – Do – Enjoy→
My friend Pat wrote about Nehemiah yesterday. Describing his ministry as well as the ministry of Paul and who we might be needing in the coming day. It triggered something. I like Nehemiah. I like a lot of what he stands for. Represents. Does. Nehemiah has been on my heart for a few weeks. The Lord has been breaking out some cool things that I “knew” but probably was not ready for in recent days. Continue reading Fallen Walls & Burnt Gates→
